EDMONTON, Alta.. Sept. 23.— De- 
manding an increase in wages of five 
cents an lidur, some two hundred la- 
borers employed by the city, went on 
strike this morning. The city engineer's 
aid telfiihone department* are affected 
by the strike. ?' In the city engineer** 
department about 150 men have quit 
Work. Th**e were employed lh digging 
sewer trenches, and others in general

ployed by the • telephone department in 
outdoor, construction work on wire 'and

At the present time the city pays 
thirty cents an hour to laborers. This 
has satisfied the men apparently until 
last Saturday, when an agitation arose 
for higher wages. At that time the 
foreman succeeded in persuading the 
men to stay at work. This morning, 
however, large numbers quit work with

last Saturday night by lh* Conserva-

i.fte anniversary et the defeat of the

the nature of a welcome home to Mr. 
Borden. Over 700 gentlemen dined, and 
listened to some striking utterances by 
Mr. Borden. 

.Mr Borden said in part; "This is thi

opportunity of delivering an address to

power nearly a year ago. I would also

of Its stores in Canada. This Is the 
message which Sir Thomas Skinner, 
the chairman of the board of gdvern- 
ors of the Hudson's Bay Company, has 
for the people of Victoria. Sir Thomas 
arrived at the Empress hotel last 
night, and, in conversation with a Col- 
onist representative, said, when asked 
as to his company's 2lntenttons in re* 
gard to Victoria: 

"We are very busy Just now In 
completing our great building In Gfrl- 
gary. Both we and/the city of Cal- 
gary have outgrown our present 
builJlng. and we have found It neces- 
sary to erect a building there which 
will meet the demands, not only of the 
present, but of the future also. We 
are building a very large and a very 
up-to-date structure, which we believe 
will meet the situation. It Will be as 
like one of the Harrod stores In Eng- 
land as possible, with conditions vat- 
led to meet Canadian requirements. 
It will be the modal for all our stores 
Tor Western. Canada, Including the 
Vancouver and Victoria stores. Our 
next work will be to rebuild our store 
in Vancouver. We "have bought land 
at the rear of our present store, and 
J u Bt as soon 1 « wv» , cume tu th e n ec e s- 
sary arrangements with the city in 
regard to building regulations, the 
work will. be commenced, and when 
the rear section Is opened, we will 
move~-tnto it and demolish our present 
building. We expect to open our Cal- 
gary Store In March. Then we will 
commence operations <m the new Van- 
couver store, and, soon after that, we 
intend to commence work on the site 
which we have purchased in Victoria.

TORONTO. Ont.. Sept. 23 —Toronto 
accorded a magnificent welcome to 
Right Hon. R. L. Borden at the ban- 
quet given by the board of trade In 
hta honor at the new Mutual street 
JBna tonight. The great stadium 
was filled by the largest audience ever 
gathered together in Toronto. . So 
great was the public desire to Join In 
ytbe greetings to the premier that 
thousands of persona vainly sought 
admission to the hail. Devotion to 
the empire and to British Institutions 
was the dominant -note of all the 
speeches. On behalf of the people of 
Quebec, Hon. I* P. Pelletler brought a 
message of loyalty. 

Mr. Borden, of course, could not 
make any definite announcement of 
the naval defence policy which heu»lU 
propose to parliament, but he left in 
the minds of his hearers the feeling 
that when that policy is promulgated 
Canadians would have no reason to be 
ashamed of their country's self-lm> 
posed share of the burden of the em- 
pire. . 

The chair was occupied by M*. G. T.

Kverywhere effusive compliments are 
written and spoken In the light of, the 
tremendous display of engineering skill

and in Tarls 1 and Berlin give sketches 
of the chief objects of Interest along 
the route and In the construction work. 
Long special articles deal with the "re- 
volution the canal is to bring about in 
an international way." One able writer 
thinks" that "Panama will necessitate a 
greater modification of the established 
systems of foreign commerce than were 
necessitated by the Suez." and adds that 
"it is as if nature had suddenly de- 
cided to alter the course of her trade 

Another, declaring In a London 
weekly that the canal Is the "crowning 
achievement of American force and 
enterprise," makes the statement that 
the best minds of the British EmoJre 
are concentrating upon the commercial 
revolution which "is Imminent "In order 
that. Irrespective of the willingness of

Prince Rupert had an opportunity of

equinoctial season, and thje royal party 
were driven around in motor cars and 
expressed delight at the fine wide

LOXDON, Sept 23.— No decision has 
been given by the umpires who watched 
the nil'utary v manoeuvres in East Anglla. 

tiding which aide hud the advantage 

at the termination of operations is that 
the manoeuvres were intended merely 
for the purpose of training. Since the 
sham light lias concluded there has 
been a great controversy on the value 
of aeroplanes during times of war. 

While the operations were in pro- 
gress (Jrlerson, who command- 
ed 12,000 troops, made up of artillery, 
cavalry and infantry, was continually 
checked in his movements by the vigil- 
ance of the overhead scouts. While 
.traveling at night the defenders could 
hear the throb of the engines of flying 
machines. The noise prevented any «ur- 
niise on the part of the flying aerO- 
p.ano corps.

Xne opinion of experts on the use of 
aeroplanes in warfare, based on the ex- 
perience of the recent manoeuvres, is 
that the biplane ts invaluable as a 
military unit, provided the atmosphere 
is favorable, but useless otherwise. 

1 Great ^ritein is to have an air fleet 
.as a result of recent 'manoeuvres in 
"East Anglia. The war office authorities 
are so impressed with, the necessity 
that a great fleet of war planes will 
be organized; immediately. ,lt ...will com- 
prise two types or. machines, one armed 
with quick-firing guns, and the other 
will be designed for scouting. 

Just as artillery clears the way for 
infantry these giant aeroplanes will 
seek to sweep, from the airmail oppos- 
ing air craft, lenM to. prepare a clear 
passage for the swift scouts which will 
be sent into the sky in squadrons.

Snow Disposal 

MONTREAL, Qua. Sept. 23.~The 
problem of disposing of snow, whitH 
has perplexed, the city father* mor* 
and more as the growth of the city 
made it necessary for the removal of 
the dumps to a greater distance from 
the centre of the city,' has, it is 
thought, finally been solved, the 
plan as proposed ' to the city council 
.today and accepted by It calls for the 
enlargement of the openings in trunk 
sewers* so that ' the-' snow may he 
dumped < ipt« them-, v Should I this 
scheme, which will be much in the na- 
ture of an experiment this Winter, be 
successful, it will mean a great saving 
to the city, for In years when, the 
snowfall is considerable, npvyards of 
$150,000 Is spent on the removal of 
snow from the streets 00 which' the 
street railways run. ■. ^ . >■•

VANCOUVER, B. G, Sept M;->-Mr. 
Frederick 'Lambert, of Ottawa, and a 
party of nine assistant survejors ar- 
rived tn the city yesterday after a six 
months'- stay in Alaska, where they 
were engaged in the survey of the 
boundary line front Frith river .to the 
Arctic ocean. The boundary has now 
been virtually established all along the 
H9t£ meridian from Mount Ellas to 
the Arctic, Mr. X J*. Craig, of Ot^tg- 
\va, , who has been in charge of the 
Canadian survey, will arrive here In 
a few weeks. 

Operations this season were confined 
to work on a 150-mile stretch between 
the Porcupine river and the north end 
of, the continent. The determination 
of the last few miles ' conclusively 
proved that Herehel Island, the ren- 
dezvous of America* whalers, is about 
forty 'miles due east of the meridian 
line as it trends towards 'the north 
pole, and is therefore British terri- 
tory. Observations taken by mariners 
had in a general way established the 
same fact, and for several years past 
members of the Royal Northwest 
Mounted Police; have occupredf the 
island and collected dutt*«- froftf- the 
seafaring people who visit that local- 
ity to hunt whales and trade with the 

No formal ceremony attended the 
planting of the last boundary monu- 
ment. The pillar occupies a position 
twenty-'ejrte feet above the ocean, 
which, while dotted with floating l<je 
in the summer months, was quite 
navigable. Careful measurements by 
members of the party showed that.the 
tides along the coast rise and fall only, 
seven inches. No indications of gold 
or. other metals were discovered along 
the last'se'ction of the boundary. 

Mr. Lambert said he knew nothing 
about the new Pacific harbor which 
was said to have been found by the 
party under Mr. Ogilvie,

In order to conveniently transact 
the preliminary business of the. r of- 
fice, the recently elected aldermanlc 
board of the municipality of Esquimalt 
necessary to divide their ini- 
tngj Into two sessions, the 
WM tnTh© Soldiers and 
Sailors' Homo at noon yesterday, and 
the other taking place In the Lampson 
street school in the evening; In view 
of the fact -that the newly incorporated 
council has no by-laws to operate un- 
der as yet, there was little real busi- 
ness to be done, but as a result of the 
double session arrangements were 
made which will enable the council to 
settle down In real earnest at their 
next meeting to tackle the problems 
of the municipality. 

When Reeve Lugrln took the chair 
at the noon day meeting there was a 
full attendance of the board. The 
first thing to be done was the reading 
of the report of the Incorporation 
committee. This done, and approved. 
It was at once decided to discharge 
the members of the committee. The

o e u ne ll th e n unanim o u s ly p as se d a 
vote of thanks to the committee for 
their services. The question of ap- 
pointing a clerk or secretary was then 
taken up, and while at this session it 
was found impossible to come to a de- 
cision, at the .night session a resolu- 
tion was adopted agreeing to advertise 
the post, the salary being fixed at $100 
per month. 

Question of Voiles 

Another matter that called for im- 
mediate attention of the council was 
that of policing the district,, At pre- 
sent the police, department, consisting 
of one officer, is controlled by the pro- 
vincial authorities. Now, however, 
that the district has become Incorpor- 
ated as a municipality, the province is 
no longer responsible for this work, al- 
though, as was explained by the reeve, 
It has been decided by the nrovlnsrtl 
authorities to continue the present ot - 
fleer lp his duty, until such time at 
the council is prepared to shoulder the 
responsibility' by appointing someone 
in his place. The urgent need of hav- ■ 
mg an •officer appointed at once was 
pressed upon the council, by the reeve 
and Colonel Peters, but for sonie time 
the issue was raised as to whether the 
situation would not require the ser- 
vice* of a mounted policeman. It was 
pointed out that unless the officer wis 
mounted and able to move from one 
point to another quickly, two would be \ 
required, and even at that it was sug- 
gested that the services of the mount- | 
ed officer would be ..superior -to that of 
two men cat foot Ultimately It was 
agreed to adopt the suggestion of Col. 
Peters and advertise for en officer. 
the qualifications Including that of be- 
ing a good horseman. 

Bond Malutenance 

' Perhaps the feature of the meeting 
was a letter read by the reeve from 
the Hon. Thomas Taylor regarding 
the unexpended balance of the appro- 
priation for Esquimalt district ' The 
amount, the letter stated, approxi- 
mates J2000, and the road superintend- 
ent has been advised to make expendi- 
tures In accordance with the original 
instructions. "As regards the govern- 
ment intention respecting main maris 
through the municipality," proceeded 
th* letter. "I have to advise that the 
policy of the department at the prevent 
time is to maintain one of the main 
roads In each municipality, and until 
the policy of the government Is 
changed in this respect, the depart- 
ment will look after the maintenance 
of the main road in your district. In 
regard to your further in*quiry, ' Mr. 
Reeve Lugrin, I heg to advise you that 
preparations are now well in hand to- 
wards covering this road from the cl'y 
limits to a distance of one quarter of 
a mile with Tarvia. It is expected 
that the expert who has this work In 
hand will reach here in a few days, 
and Immediately on his arrival the 
work will be commenced." 

At the evening session the question 
of the policing of the district came up 
again, when it was suggested that It 
would be. advisable for a member of 
the council to interview the attorney- 
general on the situation with a view 
to making a suitable arrangement for 
the appointment of a municipally con- 
trolled officer. On the suggestion of 
Councillor McAdavn, this matter was 
left In the hands of Reeve Lugrln. 

Cnmmlt.teen Named 

The appointment of departmental 
and other committees was then taken 
up. Councillors McAdam, Rre and 
Matthews were appointed to th" fin- 
ance committee; Messrs. McArlam and 
Andrews to the committee for the pro- 
vision of temporary accommodation. 

in addition to these committees, the 
reeve was deputed to Interview the 
government regarding the road works 
shed on Stanley avenue, it being the 
desire of the council thai it b.i left fOf 
municipal usage rather than removed 
by tllS government Another matter 
referred to the chair was that of con- 
ferring with the reeves of Oak Bay 

and Saanich fnunl [polities regarding 

the framing of by-laws and other reg- 
ulations and formalities. 

The council decided to hold their 
regular monthly meetings on Tuesdays

properly, the basic principles of the

that there will be a demand for every

Tb* metrical Display 
Another thing that Is already certain

and Captain B ulkcly . Col. H. JCL Lo w t her. 
the governor-general's military secre- 
tary, and Captain Long, A.D.C., with

Dress Begnlatlons . 
There I* always a certain amount of 
anxiety on such an occasion as to the 
proper thing to do in the matter of 
dress. On this point it Is understood 
that the rule will be that afternoon 
dress, that is frock coats and silk hats, 
win be derigeur for gentlemen at both 
the .civic reception on Friday end the 
garden party at Government House on 
Tuesday, though, in the latter case, If 
the weather }s at all like an ordinary 
October day in Victoria, some latitude 

win be^siioiiMd. as 'tp'ffim.:' ' 

For the ladles, afternoon dress will 
be required at both the civic reception 
and the garden party. For the reception 
in the parliament buildings on the 
Monday evening, full dregs, without 
trains or feathers, is the regulation for 
the ladies, and evening dress for the 
men. The admission to the garden party 
will be confined to those ' ladies and gen- 
tieraen whose names have been regis- 
tered at Government House, but the re- 
ception at the I,-, parliament buildings 
will, be a public one, the only requisite 
being evening clothes and of two visit- 
ing cards for each person, one of which 
will hare to be handed In at the door 
of the legislative chamber and the other 
given to the aide de camp in watting, 
who wilt pass it along to the military 
secretary, who will read out the names 
as each person passes 'the dais' upon 
which *betr Royal Highnesses will re- 
ceive'. " ' ., 
The Public Exception 

Arrangements are being perfected for 
the public reception which is to be held 
in the legislative chamber at the par- 
liament buildings on the evening of 
Monday next 

. Gentlemen and ladies who desire the 
honor of a presentation to His Royal 
Highness must appear In evening dress, 
and it will be necessary for each to 
provide themselves with two cards' to 
be handed to the aide de camp at the 
door of the legislative chamber. 

The public office of the mines depart- 
ment will be utilised as a cloak room 
for gentlemen and the executive cham- 
ber on the first floor wilt be fitted up 
for the use of ladles. Entrance to the 
building will be through the western 
door on the ground floor or through the 
| door at the end opposite the printing 

Refreshments will be served in the 
drill hall, the use of which has been 
granted by the militia department. A 
covered way is being built across from 
the back of the buildings to the hall. 
It will be reached by the stairway down 
from the corridor at the back of the 
speaker's end of the chamber, and will 
run from the temporary flooring, which 
is being laid in the new library block 
across the lawn to the rear door Into 
the drill hall. 

The grounds about the extensions to 
the buildings are being tidied up and 
the building material which Is lying 
about Is being stored out of sight until 
iftei the departtiri <»f the royal guests. 

The laying; of the cornerstone of the 
provincial library takes place on Satur- 
day forenoon at 11 o'clock, the arrange- 
ments for this having all been com- 
pleted some days ago by tae minister

The altogether unfounded criticism 
Of Mr. Borden on the naval question 
should receive a quietus after his 
speech at the Montreal banquet. ,He has 
Intimated in as plain language as .pos- 
sible that his government did not wish 
to hold a session until January, but 
that, as a result of his visit to England, 
an earlier meeting of parliament has 
become necessary. He will appeal at 
once for effective aid in the matter of 
Empire defence, and in this attitude he 
will have the support of all loyal Can- 
adians. There will also be a general 
■reeling n t satisfaction' at the ejand he 

We are informed that certain land- 
owners, whose property Is so sli 
that they cannot reasonably hope that 
It will for many years to come be other 
than farm land, are asking prices for 
It that no one would be Justified In 
paying, unless lie wanted a small plot, 
say, an acre or two, for residential pur- 
poses. We have no right, of course, to 
dictate to any man what he should ask 
tot his land, but it may not be amiss 
if we point out a few consideration* 
which seem to us to determine land

values. The value of land for farming 
depends upon what can be produced 
from It with ordinaryAsklll. When ths 
land is to be used only for residential 
purposes, with perhaps a small sur-» 
rounding area for a garden or orna- 
mental grounds, then the question of 
value Is very largely In the mind of 
the purchaser. It does not follow that 
because one man is willing to pa" «•?'- 
eral thousand dollars for a home-site 
that every other home-site of similar 
area is worth the same amount. Yet 
many people who hold iivge tracts of 
land seem to entertain tin? dea. We 
mention this because we have been told 
of persons, owning land more than a

that the latb r power eontlnui t ffi M

The revival of the Gilbert and Sul- 
livan operas is proving a great success. 
Victorians have not in a long tim* been 
as enthusiastic over any entertainments 
as they were over those of last week. 
We have been told that the reason why 
so much musical comedy has been put 
on of late years is because the public 
wants it; We suspect that real rea- 
son is that there has been no one ca- 
pable of producing anything better.

It was a happy thought on the part 
of the Canadian Club of Seattle to time 
Its visit to Victoria so that it will 
take place during the visit of their 
Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess 
of Connaught. It is also a graceful act 
on the part of the organizations, which 
wm a e obtnpany the cmb, to ggk that 
they might be allowed to g pay their re- 
spects to the Duke. We- think s we do 
our prospective visitors no injustice 
when we- suggest that they have beep 
inspired to thls\ course not only by A 
desire tb do honor" to the " Governor* 
General of Canada, but also by a wish 
to show their feeling towards the House 
of Which His Royal Highness Is so dis- 
tinguished a member. Queen Victoria 
and her descendants have always held a 
very warm place In the hearts of the 
people of the United States, who have 
seen exhibited In them a high appreci- 
ation of the principles of constitutional 
government and an admirable example 
of all that is best In citizenship. The

i. That tin- motor SO* was firstly and 
lastly for the protection of t 
against reckless and inconsiderate mo- 
torists, an. I the special and unusual 
powers given to the police are given to 
facilitate the conviction of such reck- 
less and Inconsiderate persons and such 
persons only. 

2. That he, the chief, must see to it 
that he only en such men as 

could he trusted not to abuse the 
eeptlonal powers given to them by the 
act, 1. p., he should be careful not to 
employ any person. of an unscrupulous

Captain Julian then read a letter 
which h* bad sent to Sir Richard Mc- 
Brtde, in reply, and which stated that 
'.t'he latter had only replied to one of

tion being a s to whether the Egeria 
Could be put on the same basts as 'a 
' technical training school add whether 
the education department would look 
favorably' On School boards being called 
upon, to pay their quota, at the same 
rate it costs to teach a lad in the public 
school.' ' :" 

' Scope of Training 

During .the discussion of the matter. 
Captain Jui^^butHned £b£, proposed 
scope of the training on the Egeria. 
saying that every boy Would be taught 
to know the Whole coast of British Co- 
lumbia, the Ashing banks and all the 
rudiments of good seamanship. The ves- 
sel would be constantly on the move, 
here today, tn Victoria tomorrow, Ns»-. ; 
aimo the next day, pO»stbly passing 
from there to ?*ew Westminster; there- 
by teaching the lads how to navigate 
tb* ship in all soriw of WSgths>, bur- 
r en t and conditions. '* 

"It, cannot be done wrthoqjt money, 
however," said Captain Julian. "We pro- 
,prtae to <io a good and useful work*, 
for we would take the boys, give them 
an academic as well as a seaman's edu- 
cation, and would turn them out with a 
certificate, entitling them to act as sec- 
ond officers on any ship that sails at 
sea. The training is not necessarily 
military; It is a training In seamanship. 
On this, basis we intend to ask the pub- 
lic and government for money. It will 
take $8,000 'to properly fit up the ship.

people of Ottawa by Mi. i'red Cook, an 
oi thl Capital, upon his re- 
turn to Ottawa. Jle laid stress upon 
the fact that "the Empress hotel has

not detract from the architectural

Mr. Cook lgid stress upon the prob- 
lem of pure water which Is puzzling ev- 

ery city in Canada today, and 
ly Ottawa/and emphasized the fact that 
the city of Victoria is spending; $1, 500,- 
000 to bring its water from Sooke Lake, 
a distance -pi ■',:** miles. Then he wont 
on tb emphasize that which Strikes ev- 
ery visitor from tbe east, namely the. 
good reads in and out of town. On 
that point he said: 

"Ottawa boasts of her clean streets 
and good pavements, but she can put 
nothing over the western cities. Indeed,' 
many of them set tbe pace for munici- 
pal enterprise. Victoria In proportion 
to its population has, I suppose, a 
greater extent of asphalt pavements 
than any other city in Canada.

The Toronto World thinks the inves-

for commerce is wei| worth. v wh|le, and 
this is one of the reasons it gives for 
thinking so. 

, Certainly the advantages that will 
come from the successful opening of 
the Hudson Bay route are well worth 
the expenditure necessary to give it. a 
proper' trial. It is now assured : that 
land In the Peace River district and 
even In the more northerly latitude is 
capable of yielding profitable crops of 
superior quality. That settlers Will 
push their wjay In increasing numbers 
Into that region is Certain, and for 
them the opening up of Hudson Bay 
navigation, and of the adjacent territory 
would be a matter of supreme im|fort-

In the matter of street decorations, 
we hope there will be no holding back. 
While the city as «ueh has certain du-

be regrettable if there should be any 
shortcoming in this regard. 

We talk a great deal of the amount

Kingdom, and it Is a great deal cer- 
tainly; but, the deposits In the Canadian

than a billion, and. very little of this 
vast smn belongs to the ao-ceAied o*pir

patients in about a month. Hon. Dr. 
Young was over to the Retreat at the 
week-end In order to receive H. R. II. 
the governor-general, who paid a visit 
to the building on Saturday afternoon. 
The provincial secretary is the respon- 
sible minister for this institution. 
Earlier in the week the minister of 
public Works visited Coquitlam to In- 
spect the new building which will 
shortly he handed over to the province. 

Dr. Young returned to the city yes- 
terday and stated to a Colonist repre- 
sentative that the new structure, con- 
stituting the main body of the build- 
ings which have been planned for the 
outdoor treatment of the mentally af- 
la designed to accommodate bn- 
.n six and seven hundred patients. 
There remains much to do yet before 
entire scheme of hospital buildings 
Is complete and the farm colony in full 

Tbe/eesUlta of the open-ntr treatment, 
which is being Inaugurated In this pro- 

li,'. young says, hnve surpassed 

all expectations, and it is certain that 
ohder it the percentage of cures win be 

Very Wirge. Dr. Doherty. who Is the 

superintendent of the institution, is an 

enthuslnstls bellevor In the schem" 

,i i by tbe government and fore- 
sees an Immense amount of good from 
tb" modem methods of treatment of 
ihental diseases, which a,re now In vogue 
In Ilrllls;, Columbia. 

and I spent a pleasant hour In Victoria, 
Bald his government hoped to have tbe 
road to Banff, a distance of 666 miles 
from Vancouver, completed within two, 
years.™ THe provincial "gbverfittVebit"" nae~~ 
already built a Marine Drivo at Van- 
couver, extending for over !<j^ mflaa; 
along tbe sea shore around Point Grey, 
and the Malahat. Drive out \ot, Victoria 
for thirty .miles, which bnoe t«f.velled 
will never be* forgotten by the visitor. 
It is a climb OA the side of a mountain, 
Often the road being 300 feet or more 
above Saanich Inlet This Is the kind 
of enterprise the West is manifesting, 
and it mlgbt net be.ainiss if old On-^, 
tario were to" take a leaf out of the 
book Of the neW West and get busy 
. in the matter of improved highways. 
auoh a thing as A; toll road is unknown 
In Western Canada, and would not be 
tolerated for a single day." 

One of the features of the Canadian : 
trade .commissioner service since the 
appointment of Hon. O. B. Foster as 
minister to charge Of the Department 
of Trade and Commerce, is the practi- 
cal way in which the trade commission- 
ers "in various parts of the world arc 
keeping their minds centred upon sug- 
gestions Which are likely to benefit 
Canadian trade, both domestically and 
from an export point of view- An In- 
stance of this is found in a recent re- 
port by Mr. J. M. Mussen, the trade 
cbmmlsisoner of Deeds, who says that at 
tentlon is being drawn in the press to 
the merits of an invention, which it is 
asserted, will revolutionize the fishing 
industry by superseding ice as a pre- 
servative. The use of ice, it is stated, 
has two principal drawbacks. First, 
Is! the scientific fact that it does not 
arrest the process of putrefaction, for 
immediately anything which has been 
preserved in ice is exposed to the air 
it goes bad at a much quicker rate than 
under normal circumstances. Secondly, 
it is very costly. The ice bill of a 
Grimsby trawler reaches £6 a week, or 
£50 for a normal trip of ten weeks- 
Moreover, it is stated that as much as 
25 per cent of a trawler's load is found 
tb be useless on reaching port under 
present conditions, and occasionally the 
whole catch has to be thrown away. 
It is claimed for the new method, which 
has been christened the "Hemming" sys- 
tem, that it overcomes these drawbacks. 
Briefly, the system adopted, is to 
(force all air out of tjhe fish. This is 
done by placing the fish in. a tank and 
pumping in carbonic gas at a pressure 
of 60 pounds to the square inch — four 
tlmes the ordinary atmospheric pres- 
sure. Tho cost is estimated at about 
eighth of the cost of ice, and It Is 
stated that the action of the gas re-1 
tards putrefaction, and will keep fish or 
other food fresh and wholesome when 
every preservative method now In use 
would fall. Demonstrations have been 
carried out in London in the presence 
of a number of influential persons in- 1 
terested in the fishing industry in Bng-j 
land and abroad. A Scotch salmon, 
which ha,s been sealed in a cylinder and 
subjected to the process for some 
weeks, Was cooked and partaken of by 
those presont. It tasted as fresh as 
though it had Just been taken from its 
native waters. But the aoverest t«Bt of 
the method was provided by some plaice, 
and codling, which had been purchaeed 
in London after having been out of the 
water and on Ice for ten weeks before | 
treated by the "Hemming" system. No} 
method in general use at present could 
have kept these Ash fresh, but it is 
stated that they proved perfectly 
WhOleeOme, It is considered that the' 
general adoption of the method would 
be followed by a cheapening of the price; 
of fish. In particular, the expectation 
is held out that it will open up the 
salmon rivers of British Columbia In 
such a way that fresh salmon from that! 
province, should, In future, be available 
in much larger quantities for oonsump-

.More discussion relative to the con- 
wlildi the Olty council ID April 
last decided should be entered into with 
Mr, Thomas H. -Mawse*, the landscape 
architect, but which was never for- 
mally approved and signed by the 
was had yesterday afternoon, when a 
special meeting of the park* committee 
was held wit* Mr. Mawson. who has 
Just arrival on the coast from the old 
country. Mayor Beckwitli. while ex- 
pressing his desire that the city, were 
It in a position to do so,*. should engage 
Mr. Mawion, declared that as matters 
stand In a financial way he did not 
think the city would be Justified Mi en- 
tering into the contract or binding a 
future council to any course of action. 

Despite objections raised also by Al- 
dermen Baker and Dil worth, the com- 
mittee decided to recommend to the 
council that a contract be prepared and 
entered into on the same lidos as that 
recommended by the council in April 
last, that is, that Mr. Mawson he en- 
Raged at a remuneration of $5,000 to 
prepare plans o? 5 comprehensive 
scheme of park beauttftcation, such 
scheme to cover the city's parks and 
open spaces within the city limits as 
well as Mount Douglas park. 

It will be remembered that the coun- 
cil last April passed a resolution 
authorising the contract. Later when 
the contract as drafted by the city soil-' 
cltor was produced some' of the alder- 
men objected to the terms thereof, «a~ 
pecialiy objecting to the payment of 
S5.000 for work which, it was claimed, 
was not worth 'that amount. The con- 
tract wga tabled and the mayor in- 
structed not to sign It. After the sub. 
sequent action of the council in decid- 
ing not to proceed With the signing of 
the contract, a communication was sent 
to Mr. Mawson notifying him to that 
effect but enclosing a copy of the con- 
tract as first drafted by the city soli- 
citor. Mr. Mawson stated yesterday 
that the contract came to htm, but no 
letter to the effect that the city 'would 
not proceed with -thr contract. He 
Signed the contract and returned It. 
When Aldermen Cuthbert retygped from, 
his eastern trip sad ascertained whit 
the council, had done he resigned his of- 
fice of chairman of the parks commit* 
tec as a protest against the council's' 
action. The matter has been debated 
in council several times but nothing 
further, wis done until recently, when 
two communications were received 
from Mr. Mawson complaining of the 
city's action; As Mr. Mawson 
about to arrive Hi the city It wsi 
elded to. discuss the matter with him 
and yesterday's Meeting was arranged. 

M:. Mawson H... . 

Mr. Mawson 'and his. son,, who is as- 
sociated with him lb his work, were 
S't ;' Cite'' ' mestinjl,, "' r ,,Mn . .Mawson ', dilated 
upon the great benefit which a properly 
executed scheme of park improvement 
would be to the city., a scheme which 
could be spread nut over a number of 
years and carried on with a deflnite^ob- 
ject in view. Following notification by 
the City clerk of the council's intention 
to engage. him he had made certain ar- 
rangements which, unless carried out, 
would seriously affect his year's opera- 
tions. From that standpoint alone he 
believed he has a certain claim against 
the city as the great amount of work 
he has underwit or in contemplation 
ttiade It dlfflctiH for him to now change 
&k* programme. Ho did hot seek im-" 
mediate payment for his services but 
would be content to wait for six months 
ft year, or even two years, but he 
strongly urged the committee that now 
is the time to initiate a proper scheme. 

A Merman Cutlibert stated that his 
Solo reason in *o urgently pressing for 
the engagement i>r Mr. Mawson was to 
have a. proper scheme prepared toy^giaT" 
expert, a scheme which when completed 
w.iiild make the Victoria park system 
the nneft of any city on tlic continent. 
To complete the plans will take lit" 
Mnwsnn until next May and until then 
■the city would not be called upon to 
pay anything except for the necessary 
survey of the park lands. 

Mayor Beckwlth stated th«t" Mr. 
Mawson was laboring under a mlsap- 
prehrnsj/>n as to the rlty's position. 
The press, too, had not understood the 
matter and had placed the council in a 
wrong light. BJarly In the year when 
certain striM lr,;pi v.i:.i«i:s were being 
discussed the su.ii-'t ,if iraU-ays 1n 
Mount Dougias i;ark were suggested 
and it was thought that <C the provin- 
cial government would assist. the 
Mount Douglas improvement should be 
eafried through. His (the mayor's) 
idea at. first was thai Mr. Thomson of 
Bfeattle, who was engaged to carry out

Alderman Cuthbert pointed out that 
whatever the "Intentions" of some of 
the cduneil the fact remained that the 
council authorized the 'signing of the 
contract and no step had legally been 
tsken Since then to reconsider that ac- 
tion. " The instructions of the council 
tiiat the contract be prepared and 
suited, bore no strings. They were ex- 
plicit. The council's decision not to 
proceed with the contract had been 
taken at a meeting at which four mem- 
bers of the parks committee had hcen 
absent, otherwise such action would not 
have been taken. 

UdermSn Okell held that as no pi 
steps bad been taken to cancel the 
council's first action in approving of the 
engagement and ordering the contract 
to he prepared, siihsertuent action on the 
part of the council had been wholly out 
of order. 

mayor claimed it was a moat un- 
fortunate thing Hint wli> n the oouncil 
had pass.,1 the resolution ordering the 
pftrat!6n or the contract, a resolu- 
tion to which there were strings, that 
Clerk should have liotifiejl Mr. 
Mawson of the city's intention to en- 
Kage him. 

Mi Mawson pointed out that, the con- 
tin.t wai drawn up by the city and 
when it arrived be signed it. He had 
never seen the clerk s communication 
i with the contract Stating that I 
,.,,,,cil hsd decided not tO JtO ahead 
With the matter.

mi Mawson the draVlng op of a new

that amount might lust as well be

He moved that Mr. Mawson be engaged 

to prepare s plan of park he» niinen tlon 

along the lines of the resolution passed 
in the' first Instance by the council, for 
a remuneration of }5,000, 

Alderman Stewart seconded this mo- 
tion, pointing out that. In his opinion. 
the best thins; to do was to have h 

proper plan. The city this ■■■■»r would

I Against a badly shattered outfit of 

Bees Portland had a snap today and 

"won by a score of 16 to 8. The game 

early developed into a farce, the In- 

- ability of either smith or Wilson to 

'keep the Col is from hitting where the 

lOeidani atn't^y, r.nunlert with a ghastly 

-Jerror and bonebead orgy Indulged In by 

the home guard making It apparent that 

I It was only a case of "by how many?" 

Victoria took the field with a patch- 
i w o r k in f le lrt, «|%T P h*L Ni ti»g +atr with 
la fcharley hoijpif'^and Jwlar In Seattle 
fat the bedside MM* ^%r %fc£ t» dan-

iat second and :$jJ6){ft.. Meek' took over 
; the Job at third The former pulled off 
;a sensational bit *% the first Inning 
Jwhen he nipped Mahoney at the platter 
«bHt in following periods he and the big 
♦catcher both performed quite up to ex- 
pectations, which to say the least were 
, '■"■inot exce'sprt*;--"- V ? •;..*, 
i| Kiddo Wilson retired after the second, 
irt which Eastley cleaned a loaded set of 
bases with a three bagger to right field 
Smith got a home run out of his system 
jln the third settled down flor a frame, 
•but -developed a severe headache in the 
fifth attfe^iggi men had beea retired, 
tw*i? eVery -Sail hit' w^t through the 
ISroeld for a safety. He lost all am- 
'bition, and six runs streamed across 
[before the gate was closed. Escla pum- 
melled the sphere into the next lot in 
this inning with the bases full Alter 
-that almost no effort was made to stop 
: tne carnage ana .Portland scored as 
they, pleased -Eastley added to his bat- 
ting, honors in the ninth by scoring the 
Jiimit number of runs With a four-ply 

So little interest did the Bees take in 
the proceedings towards the close that 
ino coachers were sent out, and as a con- 
nequtnaeo in the ninth a three-baggeY 
and a $e^n single were rendered useless 
|»y th^Hpfayers trying to squeeze an extra 
i.-ase'vA^'-of them '.. 

Kastley might have pitched a fair 
Kune". had he tried, but Wteen a Victory 
lor his toam was assured, he eased up 
and genWously allowed .the Bees to 
^atte.h;:;i^.1» averages at his ex-' 

fe|^&Bii:.:-aapond a smashing double by 
Harmon scored Weed and Harmon him- 
self eame home on Troeh'a lucky bound*

pot a "soft" one in the fourth going to 
third when Esola overthrew first and 
coming across on a wild pitchy The 
Bees hit Eastley hard In the last three 
eessions, and two runs were the result 
In each/ of the seventh and eighth, in 
the ninth only one run was scored on a 
three-bagger, a double and two singles. 

Umpire Van Haltren couldn't make 
connections from Spokane, and the team 
managers decided on Eddie Gleason, 
the local groundskeeper, as arbiter. Ed- 
die was a little off on his calling Of 
halls nnd strikes, but on the whole did 
fairly well. Of course he got panned 
{,-ood and hard by the fans because the 
home team was losing.

al boxing is at an end in Victoria as 

fair as the Oak Bay municipality Is con- 
cerned. Further efforts, however, will 
be made to put on a bout in that dis- 
trict as Is evidenced by the fact that 
the council has on hand at present two 
or three applications from other local 
promoter*. These were not given any 
consideration at last night's meeting. 

Mr. Davies stated. last night that he 
had requested the Oak Bay council to 
leave Bayley's name out of the question 
entirely, owing to the seeming Impossi- 
bility of getting the Canadian champion 
to some to any reasonable terms, but 
apparently this request was overlooked 
when the application came up for dis- 

It. Is understood that the permit 
granted for the recent boHt between 
Bayley and Scott must not be taken as 
meaning that professional boxing is 
open In Oak Bay, as on that occasion 
It was merely the stretching of point in 
order to afford Victorians an opportun- 
ity of seeing the local boy, who had 
won the Canadian championship, In ac-

With the Northwestern league season's 
end only a matter of days away, It is ap- 
parent that the 1912 batting honors will go 
to Harry Meek, the stocky Victoria vetsran. 
Hap Myers is only nine points behind, but 
Happlcus will have to do. some extraordin- 
ary clouting and Meek will have to slump 
to overcome the lead enjoyed by the latter. 

Myers will probably have to be' content 
with the run-getting and base-stealing hon- 
ors. The' latter he has had cinched for 
many moons, the former he should be able 
to hold out easily against Pug Bennett, his 
on'v;ci,nrle rival. 

Chick Hartley, the Philadelphia police- 
man in the Indian uniform, and Wilson, the 
Seattle outfielder, each have some extra- 
ordinary av e r ages , but their comparative 
number of games excludes them from the 
real "honors of the season. 

The race for the pitohtng honors of the 
league la so elose that It may not be' de- 
cided till the very last game is pitched. 
James Is half a gams ahead of Noyes, and 
Jimmy , Clark is stlli in the running. 

All pitchers averaging around the .500 
mark and better; all batsmen now playing 
regularly In "the lineup batting over .260 or 
close around that mark, and the leading 
baae-stealers and aacrfice hlttera are shown

"Canada is growing ao last; you ara 
doing: so many big things at once; ami 
you want to do so many of them all at 
once that thert* is somo difficulty on 
the part of British investors in under- 
standing the constant demand tor 
money from Canada. But i am glad to 
pife* toMX tbe class at securities -you arc

stood higher in the London market than 
#he does.- today. 

"There always comes a time when 
there la more on the market than the

with, the London market when the sum- 
mer vacation began; but I am of the 
opinion that the three months which 
have since passed have allowed time for 
the digestion of many of the then unsold 
securities, and that you will find the 
market much better next month. 
, *■ "There Is, however, a tendency on

■ "As one pf the directors of the bank

Itself entirely to the flotation of Can-

municipalities la that It is better to pay 
•the rates of the day rather than wait 
• for a better time. You are developing 
ao rapidly that even six months' delay 
often means much. It. may. mean^thiat 
you hive missed your obance of getting ' 
your money at the current rate; that 
your work may have been held up for 
the la6k of toe money; and that In the 
end you will have to pay a higher. r*t©

presence and with the assistance of "r. 
Mawson himself, who has lust »^*«» ''*•""

was arrived at that the contract should be 
prepared along the lines of the resolution 
passed by the council In April last, sr. 
Mawson to provide the plan and receive 
therefore »5.000 as hie remuneration, asr. 
Mawson left the council chamber apparently 
expecting that this resolution would go In 
the shape of a report to laat nights meeting 
of the council. In another column Is a re- 
port of the afternoon proceedings, which 
were tame compared with the discussion 
which took, place last evening, when Alder-

submitted and as it was decided at the 
afternoon meeting It should be submitted 
could net have been more wldsly different. 
Its presentation aroused brisk discussion. 
Alderman Stewart finally left the chamber

with the clark attempting to refer back to 
previous resolutions passed by the council 
on the same subject, of the contract.

his word, and he must henceforth sail 
on till the last day, unless, through a 
woman's fidelity, he should he released 
from his f«te. The devil, stupid as he 
ia, has no belief in woman's faith, so 
he permits the wretched captain to land 
once every seven years that he may 
marry, and thus seek an opportunity of 
gaining deliverance. After most of 

these experiments he is only too glad 
to return on hoard and be relieved from 
her who should release him. 

During one of the seven-year periods 
of his endless voyaging, he forms a 
friendship With a Scotch merchant 
whom he chances to meet, sells his dia- 
monds at an absurdly low price, and. 
irlng that his customer has a fair 
daughter, demands her In marriage. 
transaction is duly completed. Tn

ture of the raptnln taken when he had 
visited the country a hundred ypars he- 
fore, and a traditional prophecy warn- 
ing the women of the family to bewnro 
of the original. The maiden is dis- 
mayed at the resemblnnce of the pic- 
ture to the groom, and al sight 'of the 
picture the heart of the captnln Is 
without hore as his .ship Is without an- 
chor. But If the Scotch lass has dUtn^l 
his secret, she makes no sign and pro 
mlses lo he true until death. After (he 
mnrrlage the unfortunate captain Is 
dragged off to his mysterious ship, and 
his faithful wife throws herself Into 
the sea. Proving her fidelity to him In 
death, the ban over the Flying Dutch- 
man la broken; he Is released, and the 
ghostly Ship sinks Into the depths of 
the ocean. Whether ,nl " '" tnp trllP

The sealing schooners Casco,

yesterday morning by the Victoria 
Sealing Company to Mr, J. Sidney 
Smith of Vancouver, who proposes to 
place, onglnrtiila Iht.Tttffnl* nod , uae 
them in the halibut Ashing business. 
The Casco was. the schooner-yacht in 
which Robert Louis Stevenson wrote' 
many of his now-famous books, and 
there was a movement under way 
among admirers of his works to sub- 
scribe a fund for the purchase of the 
vessel to preserve the schooner as a 
memorial to Stevenson. Now, however, 
the ownership of the Casco has passed 
from the sealing company, and the 
decks which "Tusltala, the teller of 
tales" paced In the southern seas when 
he cruised among the Islands, will reek 
with fish, the cabin In which he sat to 
write the classics which many readers 
love and future readers will pore over 
through the -years to come, will house 
oilskin-clad fishermen. The purchaser

On the asBumpt'.u l that one ton of 
steam Is equal to three of sail, steam- 
ships now do 30 times as mu;h of the

the British flag boasts practically on>- 
hulf, as much as 17,000,000 tons being 
registered In the United Kingdom, and 
1,600,000 in the British colonies. It 
may be conjectured, too, that the Bri- 
tish half compris.s the newer and more 
econoini. i moiety. It must 

be acknowledged, however, that some 
of our rlvale are going ahead ratlin 
rapidly. Thus. While 340,000 tons of

Counsel for Sooke Contractors 
Does Not Retract Statements 
Concerning Which City's 
Officials Made Complaint 

In response to the council's request that 
•he explain whst he meant when he met the 
council at a recent session of that body and 
made certain statements winch Water Com- 
missioner Rayrour and Mr. Wynne Meredith, 
the city's consulting engineer on the -Sooke 
Lake work, stated, In a written complaint 
to the council, has virtually accused them 
of graft. . Mr. ». T, Elliott, ^KJBt*: .?■»' ; 
represented at that meeting the Westholme 

aber Company, contractors on the Sooke 
» development work, has presented his 
answer to the city and It was read at last 
night's meeting of the council. Mr. Mere- 
dith and Mr. Raymur complained that Mr.' 
Elliott, in bis statement* ;to the counotl, 
had asserted that by framing the specifica- 
tions for the work, so provided that tit* 
Reinforced Concrete Pipe QQnmfMrVnM***? 
son, Mich., was the only company that could 
conform with the specifications and that 
this being the case, the company hid held 
op the Westholme Lumber Company, as also 
the other tenderers, for a price of t».40 per 
1 foot for forma alone and that later they 
had entered Into a contract with the com- 
pany for the same thing at elxty-twb cents 
per foot, and that the, difference between 
those two figures was .graft pure, and 
simple. They pointed out that the price of 
sixty-two- cents covered only forms and 
patent rights, while the price of $ Was 
for the finished article not. the forma only,

that only one tympany could tender on the

Alderman Heard scouted the necessity of

a brief council Inquiry would clear up 

Alderman smwnrt was equally emphatic

ing engineer, and Alderman Oleason pointed 
hi Mmt the specifications as drawn per-

passed over. They urged an Investigation 
under oath but the council decided that 
Mr. Elliott should be first- written to and 
asked for an explanation of 'hla statements. 
This reply was read at last night's meeting 
of the council' and was as follow*:' 

' Mr I ■III.. I. - It.-pM 

•% ugve your letter" of' : 'jWh. "- Inst, m 
reference to ray argument before you as 
counsel for the Weatholme Lumber Com- 
pany. Limited. Tour letter refers only to 
the matter of the concrete pipe, although 1 
directed your attention to other matters of 
equal Import. * .. " 

"Tour statement of. my argument le> J*~s 
complete, and, when read as you state It, 
detached from the context, would seem to 
show that Tn«a nte*gr£mea« unsupported 
. allegations, whereas. In everything I said I 
referred to official documents and gave ac- 
tual f lg ures. 
.. — **«W«et,..>to get -back to the actual condition 
of a: »br%.let m« deal with the Sooke Lake 

• "This contract calls for tbe construction 
of a concrete pipe line of such a character, 
that the materials necessarily used therein 
are covered by process patents. 

"The only safe method to pursue In 

specifying the use of process patents is to 

obtain from, the' patent , owner the price at 

which the process patent can be used and 

. insert 9tkh price In the specification. 

"An effectual clause to this effect would, 
read: 'The engineer will accept the Smith 
Company's pipe, manufactured In accord- 
ance with. MieW> published dJaiwrm' and 
specification under date of January let, 
1911. The city hag obtained the right to 
use the process patent upon, payment of 
twenty cents perVllheal foot royalty. This 
right may be exercised by toe contractor.' 

"No other course is safe. This iltlt: 
acid test. It the owner of the patent win 
not Iglve a reasonable price before the 
specification Is made, there is no hope once 
the patent Is specified. 

"If more than one process patent Is speci- 
fied without securing a. fixed price. for the 
patent use, tho difficulty is Intensified. The 
patent holders naturally . do not compete; 
they combine; and the result is an un- 
reasonable price. 

"My argument to you was that under the 
Sooke Lake contract this condition of being 
confronted with an extravagant price ex- 
isted. I Illustrated my argument with 

"The resolution under consideration by 
your board was to take the contract away 
from the Westholme Lumber Company and 
finish it on a cost and percentage* basis, 
ostensibly to be computed on the basis of 
the contract submitted to the ratepayers, 
but. in reality involving an undertaking of a 
radically altered character. Against this 
resolution my efforts were directed. ■ The 
concrete pipe as specified would necessarily 
be manufactured In moulded blocks of re-' 
Jnforced concrete, four feet In length, 
weighing approximately one ton. . There 
should be no difficulty in arriving at the 
value of a block manufactured In the mould 
ready for delivery. 

"As a basis for computation let me sub- 
mit you some figures: (a) Steel reinforce- 
ment for four foot block placed In mould. 
48c; (b> one ton concrete mixture placed In 
mould, $2.00; cost of block, $2.48. 

"Probably not an unreasonable estimate 
as the material would bo handled without 
the expense of city bunkering and haulage. 
"But to prevent any siiRKC»tlon of under- 
value, let us double these figures for the 
concrete mixture: (a) Steel reinforcement 
for four foot block placed in mould. 48c; 
i hi one ton. concrete mixture .placed in 
ilfl, 14.00; cost of block. $4.18. 
"The price admittedly propdsed to bi paid 
for this block By the city In finishing the 
M-act was $9.60 per block, with the 
addition of the cost and percentage com- 
mission which I will here place at the 
minimum of five per rent, or 48 cents per 
ck — a total of J10.08. 

■'I believe l am riKht in saying there are 
upwards of $30,000 blocks, i believe I am 
right In saying that nearly all the tenders 
submitted were based on the same price of, 
or approximately $9.60 per block. 1 believe 
T in. !ii;ht in saying that In respect of each 
block there would hays been paid not only 
the value of the block but an additional 
sum exceeding the value of the block; that 
Is to say, would actually pay two prices and 
fet some more. 

"This was what I believed at the time I 
nriruert before you. It Is what I still believe. 
The matter Ilea within a very narrow com- 
pass '..hi . nn easily have my figures verl- 
fi.-.l or disproved. 

"I have the grcat^M pergonal unwilling- 
ness to say at. ilnng which reflects on any 
public official, and If the argument I made 
to you was based nn Incorrect figures I 
fhai! l.c only too glad to make public any 
necessary C OrTf l tfcns. In fst-t. your adopt- 
In,? and publishing nny official figures will 
establish the position of your officials. 

"With the exception of two conferences 
with the mayor ' of Victoria, dnniin« with 

the slants of the Westholme Lumber • 

pany under th- contract, I havs noi had 

occasion to mention the matters dealt wltS 
In your letter and would not pretend to any 
knowledge of the disposition of any money 
by way of Irreslstlhle Inference. 

"If you will submit to me any official 
figures I will be glad to communicate with 
you again. 

Yours truly. 

(Pgd.) R. T. ELLIOTT " 

Still in the Dark 

Alderman Porter suggested filing Mr 
Elliotts reply, stating that It left the 
council more than ever In the dark and, as 
Mr. Elliott Is a lawyer, perhaps that ac- 
counted for the density of the explanation 
Personally he was present at the meeting at 
which Mr. Elliott made his alleged charge 
of graft, but he (Alderman Porter) hsd not 
taken any such meaning as Imputed by Mr. 
Meredith or the water commissioner. He 
supposed there must be some scspegoat and 
Mr. Raymur was chosen by the Westholme 
Lumber Company for that role. 

"I'm tired of being made a scapegoat." 
ejaculated Water Commissioner Raymur. 

Alderman Porter suggested thst the com- 
pany Is quite willing to make a scapegoat 
of. Mr. Itaymur. The company, he averred, 
Is still "rrowlng" over the fart that the 
council opted Mr. Raymur from In* ppst-

that so many, not associated with the

with those of other countries. We speak 
of east and west In sympathy of Ideals.. 
Let there be not east nor west, but let 
there be -ftfte Canada." 

Transportation , r 

■ The prime minister discussed the 
problem of transportation, of the cheap 
carriage of Canadian products for the 
markets at home and abroad, and of the 
possibilities for the development of the 
inland waterways. "There wan one prob- 
lem which should no* be forgotten-rt 
that of five hundred or six hundred 
miles of territory having nj>W little or 
no population. Bltuated between the east 
and the west. He and his colleagues 
would do all within their capacity to 
bring the inhabited east into the un- 
■hablted west and to prevent all diver- 
gence of sympap&*^; . : - ■ . 

The facilities afforded by .railways 
and waterways should be supplemented 
by lUghways, which were the necessary 
link in any well-considered 'scheme -of 
transportation. The government hoped 
to assist the provinces to develop a 
system of highways which would bear 
comparison with those in Kurope or " 1 
tnose under construction In the V. S. 
The government did not intend to aban- 
don any proposal it had made in that 
regard. Canada Had every resource which 
she coul wish for. Canadians should 
realize that It was not their duty to 
bury tholr talent, but to tako those re- 
sources and manufacture, as far as. 
mlgftt he, every article required by the 
Canadian people. Ontario has accom- 
plished a great achievement in bringing 
electric power from Niagara to the 
cities and towns, and lie hoped the same 
benetlt would be fxtonded to every 
farmer on his land. 

Mr. \\ \V. Rowell, K. C, leader of the 
lvlberal party of Ontario, proposed the 
toast to the parliament of Canada. He 
was glad to join, Irrespective of party, 
hi the welcoming back Of Mr. Bordon. 
as premier of one of the great, free, 
self-governing nations of the empire. 
Parliament had kept pace with Canada's 
progress by Increasing Us status among 
the legislative bodies of the world and 
by adding departments of labor and of 
external affairs. The time had come 
when Canada should take Iter place In 
upholding the Union Jack as the banner 
of freedom and civilization. 

Hon. W. T. White, minister of finance, 
spoke of Canada's growing revenue and 
the expansion of trade. He hoped this 
years to i>ay out on consolidated revenue, 
not only the current and running ex- 
panses of this great dominion, but cap- 
ital charges as well, and still have a 
substantial surplus to apply in the re- 
ductln of the national debt of this Do- 
minion, a fact which should greatly im- 
prove the standing of Canadian secur- 
ities of all kinds in the financial market.

policy, in view of the Influence of the

since the launch lefl Astoria. Hauk

terrifying and unexpected angles until 
it was dangerous to stand up without 
laying hold of something fast 

Then the engine tailed. The bear-

the machinery and drifted in the mist. 

In the afternoon the veil of mist was 
suddenly torn aside and they found 
themselves close under "a wild shore of

a file and a piece of rope he had been 
at work smoothing them. In the mean-

TIS Elevator Service* though teW obtrusive, is as essential to 
thraffairs of modern" btisj^rife the telephone. Without this 
service, business buildings over three storeys in height would 
;be impracticable and impossible — the skyscraper would be still un- 
dreamed of. Business sections of important ; cities would require 
ground areas as great as those occupied by the cities .themselves to- 
day. Modern efficiency in concentration and convenience of loca- 
tions wotild be impossible. 

Otis" Elevator Service is as impcrtaht as street car service. It 
provides the most perfect transportation known to the world today. 
Some of our installations are required to carry thousands of pas- 
sengers daily ; others but a few dozen. Yet all are equally efficient. 
Each is a product of super-refined methods and an* ejepeirience that 
has expressed the first and last word in elevator construction.

A Very Interesting Account of

The second of two articles •written

|a brief account of the opening of the 
.interior of this great province. 
S I With but few exceptions the earliest 
%>ld miners In British Columbia en- 
tered the province by way of Victoria, 
coming here from San Francisco and 
the Panama by boat, and then follow- 
ing the rivers to the gold fields of the 
'Interior. Some little time passed, after 
the gold fever broke out. before many 
-eastern Canadians were "panning" the 
gold-laden gravel of the Tale and Cari- 
boo, the reason o{ this being the diffi- 
culty of reaching the gold fields from 
, the other side of the continent Finally 
: the movement commenced, and parties

In 1863 a small four-page weekly 
newspaper made its appearance in 
town, and it sold for one dollar a copy. 
It was called the Cariboo Sentinel, ami

stay away from the exhibition, and, 
having come, he desired to congratu* 
late the society on the hlgb quality of 
the exhibits. , They were so good he 
though that another year they ought 
to send a district exhibit to the pro- 
vincial show, and there establish be- 
yond all question that the Delta was 
the richest farming area In British Col- 
umbia. The provincial government ap- 
preciated the good work they had been 
doing by coming to their assistance 
with a generous special grant to their 
agricultural buildings. Mr. Scott he 
referred to as a practical farmer* who 
sympathized with their difficulties* and 
was only too glad to come to their 

ass i sta n c e . 

Mr. Scott, the deputy minister, spoke 
at some length on the desirability of 
intensive farming and truck gardening, 
and pointed to the excep tfcgnsj Jifcdvao- . 
tages of the Delta for tmt'''$$H v of 
farming, in that it lay adjacent to such 
splendid markets as Westminster and 
Vancouver. ^Probably they had some- 
thing to complain of ,hn the way of 
transportation, but ho felt assured that 
this would right Itself In a ihort time. 
The market was aver growing, and al- 
though the farm products -of ■ British 
Columbia were increased over $7,000,000 
last year, there wai still a very large 
margin- between the demand/ and tin 
supply, which was being met by Im- 
porting foodstuffs. Farmers should 
put forth every effort they, could for 
the population of our cities was con- 
stantly increasing, and he believed the 
time was soon coming when the large 
farms in the Delta would be subdivided 
Into from ten to forty acre blocks and 
Intensively cultivated. He was very 
favorably impressed with their show of 
stock and roots, which he considered 
excelled anything he had seen before 
at a district show, but he was disap- 
pointed In the number of entries in the 
poultry department This was one of 
, the most profitable branches of the 
agricultural industry, and should se- 
cure a more important place On the 
farms of the Lower Mainland. ,

The very violence of the disease and 
the severe "winter weather checked the 
spread of the pestilence, because the 
natives were no longer able to flee 
from place to place, carrying contag- 
ion to Other tribes and camps. 

Before passing from these early days 
In the interior of British Columbia, let 
one reference be made to a man who 
appeared In the earlier sketch — to Petar 
Dunlevy, who discovered the famous 
Horsefly mine, or rather was directed 
to It by a young Indian. Dunlevy be- 
came wealthy, and after his gold mine 
was worked out he engaged In trade In 
the upper country, where his "luck" 
continued. On one occasslon he was 
going up Manson Creek In company 
with a provincial officer named Edgar 
Dewdney-; when Dewdney, who had to 
do the cooking while Dunlevy looked 
after the horses, -left the matches so 
near the fire that they all Ignited 'and 
were, of course, destroyed. It Is re- 
lated that they had to Journey on for 
miles before they could procure a sup- 
ply of matches,, which were finally ob- 
tained from an Indian ., camp- The 
point of the episode is/ this: Kdgar 
Dewdney, after holding various offices 
"in the west, entered the Canadian House 
of. Commons, and. In 1888. became 
Minister of the Interior and Superin- 
tendent of Indian Affairs in the cabinet 
of the late Sir John Abbott and he 
held the portfolio for four years. He 
was afterwards Lieutenant-Governor of 
British Columbia. This is almost cur- 
rent history, and yet Mr. Dewdney had 
been the companion in the wilds of 'Bri- 
tish Columbia of the discoverer of 
Horsefly mine. And thus one realizes 
thai measured by the history of Basi- 
ern Canada, the early days :of thej m- ; 
terlor of British Columbia are not for 
distant A few years have brought 
great changes to the Canadian West

The Empress Thsatre— The Empress 
theatre has become noted for the excel - 
lence^ of the playlets presented ,: there. 
"The* Pool Room" is the name of the 
playlet presented: by Charles WJidisch 
and company. Mir.; W^*IWUiais«h^- wh« 
plays the part of a. dope-flend^ who 
takes the crime of another tip<m Ills 
shoulders, and then commits suicide, 
plays his role In a quiet, natural yet 
forceful manner, and he compels atten- 
tion from the very «ta|% His supporting 
company Is very . good. }. Soott turn- Wil- 
son, comedians and acrobats, with 1 their 
original turn, are also, bach again, and 
are more welcome than ever. The for- 
mer plays the part of a/ "it*!*** to the 
life. Constance Farmer and Marie Hy- 
lands were also very popular with their 
audiences. Miss Farmer makes a dash- 
ing "boy' and has the voice and ap- 
pearance. Miss Hylan&s has a very 
sweet soprano voice that she know* 
how to use. Another novel act Is "Scenes 
Behind the Scene," In which the audi- 
ences are initiated to the bare stage 
and the Secret of ''maklng-up," as both 
Mr. Delmore and Miss Adair change 
from white-face to black-face and 
creole. The act is full of laughs right 
from the tlnvs that the couple make 
their entrance. Miss Adair showed a 
couple of very handsome costumes. 
Prlncoes Theatre — "Moths," a society 
drama, written by the great French 
author, Ouida, was presented at the 
Princess theatre by the Williams stock 
company last evening, and it received 
splendid i.rcHlment at the hands of 
tliese conscientious players. As a rule 
stock companies do not present society 
dramas as well as they do those which 
call for more action and sensation. Be- 
sides, plays of this sort tax more 
severely Individual merit and ability. 
But last evening tlio Williams company 
showed conclusively that they excel led 
In this line of work. Miss Mildred Page 
In the leading role of Vera Herbert was 
at hei very best, the gentle refinement 
of her manner, her strict adherence to 
truth, ;:ml purity, and the natural 
pathos which pervaded all her cmo- 
t'uno; scenes was not only artist U- bul 
hko rang ngly true Miss

no Instance hah he succeeded In dupli-

earlier drama. The iippoa ranee here of 
"In Old Kentucky" will he with the 
same splendid cant and the same high 
standard "< excellence in every detail 

of the performance that has marked 
former presentations. The engagement 
here Is sen Holed for Thursday evening, 
MUss moselle Knott Comlas; — For en- 
tertainment and deep Interest, "The 
Awakening of Helena Richie" is a pre- 
eminent attraction. It has hsd extend- 

ed engagements la New York. Boston, 
Chicago an, l Philadelphia, and Is now 
enjoying its third road tour to excep- 
tional business throughout this western 
territory. The plot Was i oiieelved by 
Margaret Dpland und the dramatization 
made by Charlotte Thompson, a well 
knoWn newspaper woman of Kan Fran- 
Clscp. Kven In these days of lavish ex- 
penditure] the settings of Helena are 
Incomparable. When Philadelphia puts 
it« approval on a play of Pennsylvania 
life .t may be well claimed for the prn- 
•luclton that it represents Pennsylvania 
life and its people accurately. Such ap- 
proval Philadelphia, gave to "Helena" 

The company which win pres.-ni this 

plfty here is headed by Miss Rosellc 
Kioli, a Canadian actress.. The play 
will be presented at the Victoria theatre 
on Saturday, September 28. 

Crystal The»trs— Today we have a 
holiday or fair programme that will 
long he remembered. Baby Violet Hub- 
bard appearing as the "Baby Soprano," 
is a wonder. She no"l alone has a volee 
that can be heard In every part of the 
house and which Is clear and sweet, but 
a personality that few older ones has. 
She proved n riot yesterday. The dou- 
ble on the bill -is Gilbert and Hughes, 
in black and tan singing, talking and 

daneihg. Their JoKps are all new and 
the simoon away above the average as 
their songs are new and thpir voices 
exeeiient. The pictures are more than 
up to the standard. Pathe's Weekly 
Deads the list with scenes from all over 
the world. This number is unusually 
Interesting. 'The White Rose of t' 1 ** 
\\ lids." Is a Biograph Western drama 
that Is a dandy and far above the av- 
eraa;Jl western; •Gamblers," is a Vita- 
graph drama full of Interesting situa- 
tions; "The Borrowed Baby," Is a Ka- 
l*m comedy. As the pictures change 
tomorrow be sure and saa this pro- 
gramme today. *

The Paint That Is Easiest To 

is surely the paint you ought to buy when there's an j 
you want to paint. M-L, Pure Paint spreads so 
evenly and easily that it satisfactorily covers 
more surface than most other paints. 

Best You Can Buy 

also leaves the 

smoothest, glossi- 
es surface— and takes the least paint to do a good 
job. Wears longest, too. Any surface it covers 
will not need re-painting for the longest possible 
time. That's why M-L Pure Paint is by 
far the most economical paint you can buy. 
Try it. Note the dear, clean colors and WU, 
beautiful gioss it gives.* Only purest ma- 
terials and skilful mixing can ' 
make paint like that ! 

THE exceptional durability of M-L 
, Pttte Paint is due to a Special in- 
gredient which we alone have learned ho w 
to mix with other pure materials to make 
a paint that is not easily affected by ex- 
tremes of wear or weather. You get the 
biggeet money's worth in M-L Pure Paints.

in* fact. 



When You BtiyaSftw 

Buy a Good 

A poor tool is a poor bargain at any price. 
It won't do the Work. For only a little 
more than you pay for a""chcap saw you 
could buy an 





Here's a saw that won't make you mad when you use'it.^You'Jl 
'find it Sharp, easy running and fast cutting. 

Made of SILVER STEEL— better steel than yoU'lL find "in most i 
razors. The blade is so tapered' that it doesn't bind in the wood. 

That's the kind of a tool yoii want and it costs, aya rule, only a 
', little more than the "bargain 1 ' kind.

Smart Costumes, Serviceable and Stylish Coats, New and Handsome Silk 

Waists and a Special Showing of Men's Suits and Overcoats, at Easy Prices Should Make 

This Store a Very Busy Centre This Week 

A Perfect Fitting Costume Is Not 
An Expensive Luxury This 


MOST women, even those with a very limited income, can in- 
dulge in a costume that displays all the refined Ruches that 
skilful artists and tailors usually put into garments that have 
been considered expensive in the past. 

The display of models now to be seen in the View street window or 
in the department on the first floor, will confirm this statement. 

Either the plain tailored or the fancy styles are to be had. in all 
sizes, and as the assortment includes French, German, English and 
American models, there is a variety that should cover all tastes.

OT the quality of tha Jarnents U such that few men would believe 
could be prodwa#- : «0»..the price unless actually seen for them r . 
selves. It was generally considered that the very best quality of 
tailoring wfta produced by the custom tailor, and that it was an impos- 
sibility to buy a really well-fitting suit with a touch of individuality about 
it unless youN had it made to your measure and paid at least $30 to $35. 
but this Jtao't the case today. 

Like all other trades, the tailoring of men's suits ha* now evolved 
to the Specialist stage. NO one man trie* to make a whole suit in the 
modern custom factory. Each little part is done by a man who concen- 
trate* oa that part only, and as a result he becomes a specialist who 
would be very hard to beat. 

Here are oulta that have bean miade under these conditions, and that 
is why we ar« able to offer you clothea that measure well up to the 
standard of the very highet* class of custom tailoring, at. a price that is 
weU within the reach of the Average man. 

Blue serges, either the unfinished rough surface style so popular 
with business men. or the twilled worsted serges, are to- be had. Then 
there are the fine tweed effects that com* in a variety of mixed colors 
to choose from, if you prefer them. The coata are in the three-buttoned 
sack style or the double-breasted models, while the trousers are the semi- 
pegtop style, fitted With '"belt straps, 2 hip pockets, 2 side pockets and 1 
watch pocket.
